Justices by the Numbers

This week’s CAIRNS Etanhan Wotanin column, guest written by former CAIRNS Research Assistant and current PhD student at The Ohio State University, discusses the voting record of the current U.S. Supreme Court with regard to cases involving American Indian tribes, their citizens, or the U.S. on behalf of tribes. Overall, he found that the Roberts Court has heard 30 such cases since 2005 and decided in favor of tribes or their citizens 15 times. Tyler then examines the voting record of each Justice and computes a “favorability rating” for each of themThe column, “Justices by the Numbers,” can be read now by clicking here, or later this week in the Lakota Times newspaper.
